Nigeria international Taiwo Awoniyi has earned a bachelor’s degree in business management at the Buckinghamshire New University, United Kingdom.

Awoniyi recently joined newly promoted English Premier League side Nottingham Forest from Union Berlin in a reported club record transfer fee of £17 million.
